We are a movement, an idea, a hope, and a dream coming together to form a reality!

The reality is to successfully build and maintain an accredited college specializing in the educational, social, work-readiness, and life skills of students who learn differently. Students with Learning Disabilities (LD), Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Dyslexia.


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our Vision

Is to be the leading accredited college for empowering students who learn differently to become self-advocating, socially enabled, technologically proficient, and economically skilled contributors to the global community of today and tomorrow.

Our Mission

We offer individualized and innovative educational methods combined with career training and personal development for students with learning disabilities wanting higher-education degrees and those who only desire vocational training and social skills. We leverage a student’s strengths to communicate, operate, and succeed in their chosen profession, achieve self-advocacy and productive lives, and be an influential contributors to the global community.

NHI-LA collaborates with industry professionals and local and national businesses to develop an environment that combines social and academic guidance. The learning process is centered on two essential elements within this environment: each student’s diagnosis and small learning communities (SLC). NHI-LA merges these elements with customized and hands-on business and social skills training, real-world labs, and the latest technologies to create a holistic environment for each student.

Teaching, Instruction, and Core Beliefs

The objective of NHI is to guide, educate, and enrich these exceptional students by merging hands-on, real-world assignments with our career and personal development programs and traditional/innovative academic teaching methods. Our goal is to create real-world projects collaborating with local and national businesses, non-profits, and government agencies.

NHI aims to mold daily assignments and the bulk of each student’s curriculum with traditional and non-traditional educational strategies and techniques with hands-on career and life skill development programs. We believe the nucleus of this molding process should consist of the latest teaching and learning methods, how each student absorbs preferred information, and their prior knowledge and IEP (Individualized Education Plan).

Through this holistic learning experience, we believe our students will evolve into individuals who can become financially and socially self-sufficient and productive members of today’s society.

A History of Helping Students

Our Career and Personal Development Program (CPDP) has a rich history under the former title “REACH”. We invite all visitors to Select the Program tab, then choose “The History of REACH”, to see video interviews from former students and view the testimonial video from one of our former REACH students. Afterward, select either one of the company logos under the testimonial video or go to the list of other IPs (Information Provider) businesses such as FOX Television and the Aquarium of the Pacific to view how they and other companies assisted our past At-Risk students.

Nondiscriminatory Policy

New Horizons Institute, Career and Personal Development Program (CPDP), the Summer Bridge Program and future programs, events, activities, rules or procedures, or any other organizations under NHI will make every offer not to discriminate against any student on the basis of race, color, national, gender, financial status, religion or ethnic origin. This policy includes hiring and disciplinary actions, all college conduct and educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs and social engagement policies.
